The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most significant events in Christianity. After his crucifixion, Jesus appeared to his disciples several times before ascending to heaven.
Many people have wondered where Jesus told his disciples to meet him after his resurrection. Let’s explore this topic in depth.
The Appearance of Jesus After Resurrection
After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene and other women at the tomb (Matthew 28:1-10). He then appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-32) and later that day, he appeared to the rest of the disciples in a locked room (Luke 24:36-43).
The Great Commission
Before ascending to heaven, Jesus gave his disciples what is known as the Great Commission. In Matthew 28:18-20, he said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
This commandment from Jesus is still followed by Christians today as they seek to spread His message throughout the world.
Where Did Jesus Tell His Disciples To Meet Him?
Although there is no record of Jesus specifically telling his disciples where to meet him after his resurrection, there are some clues that can help us understand where this might have taken place.
In Matthew 28:16-20, it says that after he appeared to them in Galilee (Matthew 28:10), he told them to go there and wait for him. It says, “Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.”
This is likely where Jesus met with his disciples before ascending to heaven. It is also possible that Jesus met with his disciples in other locations as well, but the mountain in Galilee is the most commonly cited location.
While we may never know for certain where Jesus told his disciples to meet him after his resurrection, it is clear that he appeared to them several times before ascending into heaven. His teachings and commandments continue to be a guiding force for Christians around the world today.
